Keys in a Glass of AlcoholIf you are arrested and charged with driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs in Florida, you may be facing a misdemeanor or felony charge, depending on the circumstances.

If your DUI resulted in only property damage, such as in the case of another vehicle, you will probably be facing a misdemeanor charge.

If your DUI violation resulted in serious bodily injury to another, you may be facing a felony charge. If another died as a result of your drunk driving, you face a DUI manslaughter charge.

The penalties you face for a first DUI conviction include:

  • Fines of up to $500
  • Community service work of up to 50 hours
  • Probation for up to one year
  • Loss of your driver’s license for up to 180 days
  • 12 hours of DUI school

Jail time is another risk: up to 6 months for a first time DUI and up to 9 months if you were driving with a minor in your vehicle. Subsequent convictions will result in even harsher penalties. DUI cases can be complicated, involving legal and scientific sobriety tests, all of which need to be investigated and addressed by an attorney who is familiar with handling all of these factors. Mazin Law is here to help.
